Miracles: Profound & Sweet

God is so very good.

Words cannot express my joy today. Suffice it to say, I am amazed, once again, at God's care for us.

At this very moment, sweet rain is falling on our dry brown ground. Rain that cleans the air, dampens the forest fires, makes the grass grow, and tells the trees it is now safe to unfurl their leaves.
Thank you, God.

This morning also brought the news that my sister's husband, Elmer, has been approved to re-enter the United States to live with his family. A tiny description of their story is here. Elmer has been gone for 17 months, with no idea of whether or not he would ever be allowed to return. Today, he is allowed to return.
Thank you, God.

Oh such wonderful news Sabrina! We got some very much needed rain here last night too.

I'm so glad for your sister and the peace his return will bring to your family.

Thank you so much! No word on when exactly he can come home...probably loads of more paperwork to do. But at least we have the assurance that he will return. :) So happy for my sister and nephew.
